What are the worst iPhone apps? Submit your picks

I've posted my list of the most useful iPhone apps. But, how about the worst ones? Which apps disappoint, are over-priced, or have a bad user experience?

I've posted my list of the 25 must-have third-party apps for the iPhone. But, how about the worst ones? Which apps disappoint, are over-priced, or have a terrible user experience?

I'd like to publish that list, too, but I'd like your help with it. Think about which iPhone apps have caused you the most frustration and resentment. I'm especially looking for:

  • Apps that were a waste of money
  • Apps that were a waste of time
  • Apps that were a big disappoint
  • Apps that just weren't as good as they could have been

Please post your picks for the worst iPhone apps in the discussion.

Apple initially approved the app and eight people bought it before Apple got wise and removed it from the App Store.
